They say WAFFLES are just pancakes with abs. It’s our morning food for today. Ako ang nagluto.
Let’s eat, kimbap!
My snack while binge-watching my latest crack of k-drama.
Just finished baking.

Kanina lang, nagbate ako ng itlog. 😛
Masarap sa almusal ang binateng itlog.
…at gawing Egg Rolls.
Kasamang sangkap sa binateng itlog, minced carrots, red bell pepper and onion leaves + seasoning.
Siempre, solb na solb ang kain ko. Feeling ko ang yaman-yaman ko, as usual. Hihihi!
At habang nagbabate ako ng itlog kanina sa harap ng kalan, hinaharana ako ng kantang ‘to as my background music…
This is not a love song, but a song about growing up and taking on responsibilities. Nakakagana lang makinig.
Play it, beybi!

Hindi ko na maipagpabukas pa ang pagbe-beyk ng Banana Cake gamit ang Ate Shawie’s Banana Cake Mix dahil over ripe na talaga ang mga saging ko dito.
Uy ha! Walang biro, ayus na ayos ‘tong baking mix ni Ate Shawie.
Moist, masarap at malambot ang finished product. Walang istir talaga – masarap!
Napaka-convenient pa ng preparation dahil eto lang ang kailangan:
- 1/4 cup Water
- 1 medium Egg
- 3 tbs. Oil
- 1/3 cup mashed Banana
- 1 pack Sharon’s Banana cake Mix
Mix-mix na agad.
Bake for 30 minutes lang.
Parang gusto kong mag-hoard ng banana cake mix na itey at next time hahaluan ko ng NUTS para mas bonggels ang resulta!

GARLIC BREAD – ang panimula kong lafur para sa isang napakagandang araw ng Lunes.
Eto lang at isang tasang coffee, talo-talo na ang almusal ko kanina.
Paano gumawa ng garlic bread?
Ganito. . . isang lumang sliced french bread. . .
Softened butter na may pinong-pino, minced garlic at onion leaves. . .mix-mix lang. . .
Ipahid sa mga tinapay. . .
Yun na yun!

3 days ago, nabalitaan ko na mag-uumento daw ang presyo ng LPG ng bonggang-bongga.
‘Kako sa sarili ko noong isang araw, “Jeskelerd! Kelangan maubos na ang laman ng tangke ko! Now na!” Ayokong maabutan ng pagtaas ng presyo noh!
Napagtantiya ko na paubos na talaga ang laman ng tangke ng LPG ko, pero kelangan ko pa rin madaliin. Kaya para akong lukaret na dali-dali nag-bake para maubos lang agad ang laman ng LPG ko. Hahaha!
Abah, sa hirap ng buhay ngayon, kelangan kong maging wais. Kelangan ko makapagpa-deliver na ako ng bagong tangke ng LPG bago mag price increase.
At eto ang naisipan kong i-bake – BANANA LOAF CAKE.
BANANA LOAF CAKE
- 1/2 cup Butter
- 2 Eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup White Sugar
- 2 cups Flour
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 11/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 4 medium)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- Using electric beaters, beat butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and creamy.
- Add eggs gradually.
- Add vanilla and mashed banana, beat until combined.
- Dissolve baking soda in milk.
- Fold in sifted flour alternately with milk.
- Stir until all ingredients are combined and mixture is smooth.
- Bake for 1 hour.
As of this writing, bagong-bago ang LPG ko. At hindi po ako naabutan ng price increase na nag-start kanina lang. Bleh! 😛

Afternoon snack…cassava suman with buko filling.
Wag po magtaka kung bakit brown ang kulay ng suman ko. Hindi po sunog yan. Lol!
Para may variation, dinagdagan ko ng cocoa ang kalahati ng cassava mixture ko para maiba naman at para – masaya!
Na-miss ko ang kumain ng cassava suman talaga.
Parte ang kakanin na ‘to ng kabataan ko dahil ‘to lagi ang binibili ko sa school namin noon.
- 1 cup grated coconut
- 2 cups grated cassava
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup grated young coconut (for filling)

- Place measured amounts of cassava mixture on each piece of banana leaf.
- Roll Banana leaf, enclosing filling and fold both ends.
- Arrange on steamer rack. Steam for 30 minutes, counting time when live steam starts to form.
